Implants & Implant Dentures

Implants & Implant Dentures

Missing teeth no longer has to mean missing out. Modern implant dentistry can give you strong, permanent replacement teeth that look and function almost like new.

Unlike conventional bridges and dentures, which rely on adhesive to stay in place, implant restorations are held in place by dental attachments that are secured to one or more implants. They do not slip or move around, and they either snap in place or are attached permanently, depending on the type.

A regular dental implant is essentially a replacement tooth. The crown portion can be brushed and flossed normally, and the color, shape and position make it indistinguishable from natural teeth. Because implants replace the tooth root, they also help prevent bone loss in the jaw, a common side effect of missing teeth.

Dental Implants remain the best way to restore missing teeth while maintaining the overall health of your mouth and jaw.

The Procedure

Every implant procedure consists of at least two parts. The first is the implant itself: a titanium post that is anchored into the jawbone, replacing the missing tooth root. The second is the restoration, which could be a crown, a bridge, or a row of replacement teeth (also known as implant dentures). Implant procedures can be complex, and often require additional treatment such as bone grafts or periodontal therapy.

This treatment is typically sent to a specialist outside the office, however we have a qualified dentist right in our office so you don't have to go anywhere! Dr. Guilfoy has completed a Dental Implant Fellowship with the International Dental Implant Association. During his fellowship and training, he completed didactic training in Chicago, IL and live patient training in the Dominican Republic. This training has given him the ability to perform implant treatment and procedures entirely in-office saving you the time and hassle of outside specialist visits. By utilizing our 3D CT Xray machine, Dr. Guilfoy can evaluate the proper space and location, as well as accurately placing the implant, which eliminates extra costs and unnecessary office visits.

Please don’t hesitate to ask us if you are a candidate for dental implants, especially if you have been missing one or more teeth for many years.
